    Costello wants to have better URLs for the board, so he's trying out some options

    Should make it easier to link to other topics/forums/users/...

    edit: and he wanted to have the names of the topics/forums in the URL

    the new URLs are search engine optimized, in other words, are designed to get higher rankings on google.

    Oh, I see what you mean.


    EDIT: Is this another evil plan by Costello to make GBAtemp more popular? [​IMG]

    yup exactly, it goes like:
    1) noob1 makes topic "mai R4 no plays pokaymonz!!!"
    2) google indexes gbatemp.net/mai-R4-no-plays-pokaymonz
    3) noob2 searches google for "mai R4 no plays pokaymonz"
    4) the first result on google is gbatemp.net/mai-R4-no-plays-pokaymonz
    5) noob2 registers here
